How to leave a video comment or reply Sticky

You can embed YouTube and Vimeo videos directly into your comments and posts on itch.io. In order to do this, just paste the link of the video into a new line in the text field, then hit enter. The URL will be swapped out with an embed to the video.

This also works for Sketchfab embeds. Just link to a model on Sketchfab and hit enter to replace it with the embed.

If you have any ideas for other integrations post them here!

Anyway to embed dropbox videos ?

Admin

can you show me an example of their embed code?

This is a normal dropbox link :

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7wy52jbqtxkr5cl/Recording%20%237.mp4?dl=0


This is a embedable dropbox link : https://www.dropbox.com/s/7wy52jbqtxkr5cl/Recording%20%237.mp4?raw=1


To make it embedable you have to change the id=0 to raw=1, however while most forums have the abilty to embed dropbox links, itch.io does not.

here is a source embed link : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/88cnkfi1zqf3fby/Smiles%20For%20Itch.swf

Hi leafo,

Great feature. Can I edit other people's comments in order to turn their YouTube URLs into embedded videos? I didn't manage to make it work.

Thanks.

You can't edit other people's comments. One option though is for us to scan through links and automatically convert them.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I was talking about other people's comments on my game page of course. :-)
Editing other people's comments everywhere would be pretty awesome too but I can see the downside of it. :-D

Oops, I did manage. You just have to paste the URL (not the link) on a new line and then press Enter, which is what triggers the magic. The magic happens in the text editor box itself.
Very nice.
